I thought, since I've been getting a few light bulb jokes in my email lately, I'd start a thread and everyone can contribute your fave light bulb jokes.

Here's the one I got today:


Q:
How many women with PMS
does it take to change a light
bulb?

Woman 's Answer:
One!
ONLY ONE!!!!
And do you know WHY?
Because no one else in this
house knows HOW to change a light bulb!
They don't even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!!
They would sit in the dark for
THREE DAYS before they figured it out.
And, once they figured it out,
they wouldn't be able to find the #&%!* lightbulbs despite the fact that they've been
in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS! But if they did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILLBE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!!
AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER
THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS CAME IN!!! BECAUSE NO ONE EVER PICKS UP ORCARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!!!!
IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATED
FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!!
IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS PLACE! AND
DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHO CHANGES
THE TOILET PAPER ROLL !!
I'm sorry...What was the question?

Ha! My daughter's a trumpet player - high brass kicks *** - and brought home a combo of the above two - which I'm sure we'll be seeing some version of many times over here:

How many trumpet players does it take to change a light bulb?

Only one because s/he does it so well and the world revolves around him/her.

-or-

Twelve. One to do the job and eleven others to say they could have played it louder.

-or-

Five. One to do it and four others to complain about how they didn't get first chair ... AGAIN!!!

How many KMAists does it take to change a light bulb?

Nobody knows - they're too busy arguing where lightbulbs come from and who's authorized to get a new one and nobody can touch the old one.

How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb? 29


1 to see that a request for a new light bulb has been entered into the helpdesk.

1 to approve the request for a new light bulb.

1 to request a user specification sheet be filled out on exactly what they want in a new light bulb.

1 to reject the initial user specification as being too vague.

1 to approve the new improved user specification.

1 to design the low level bulb object.

1 to create the bulb methods for turning the light on and off.

1 to implement the new light bulb object implementation.

1 to write the light bulb test case.

1 to run the light bulb test.

1 to review the code.

1 to request the light bulb code be moved to the pre-production environment.

1 to install the light bulb code in the pre-production environment

1 to request the user approve the new light bulb as meeting their requirements.

at this point we will have to restart the process because the user has changed the specification.

1 to request the new light bulb be promoted from pre-production to production.

user has now purchased a new light socket that makes the existing light bulb obsolete, so start over AGAIN.

Q: How many aerobics instructors does it take to change a lightbulb ?

A: Five. Four to do it in perfect synchrony and one to stand there going "To the left, and to the left, and to the left, and to the left, and take it out, and put it down, and pick it up, and put it in, and to the right, and to the right, and to the right, and to the right..."

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]How many Microsoft engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
None. Bill Gates will just redefine Darkness as the new industry standard.

I also got an email recently entitled "How many students does it take to change a lightbulb at..." followed by a loooong list of unis. I've selected my favourites:

[/FONT]
St. Andrews: Three - One to call the butler and two to arrange a tailor in Rome to design and make new suits for the special occasion. If a light bulb in a major building blows then increase to 27 to allow for a brass band playing the last post and five Sun reporters. The following day's Sun will contain something along the lines of "Will's Pals in Blown Bulb Horror".

Bath: Seven - Five to form a radical new initiative called 'TeamBulb Focus', one to make a public announcement stating "A successful environment is not about pushing yourself to the absolute limit" and one to change the light bulb before it's actually blown.

Cambridge: Three - one to mix the martinis, one to call the electrician and one to call daddy to pay for the bill.

DeMontfort: Seven - Two to change the bulb and five to write an interpretive modern drama about the experience.

Liverpool:
Only one, but he gets 10 course credits for doing it.

Oxford: change? change?? CHANGE???????? Ok, let's do it in 300 years.

Plymouth: Six - One to change it and five to campaign to make light bulb changing a new degree subject. (just incase you don't get it, Plymouth offers a degree in surfing)

Pontypridd: Ten - One to buy the light bulb and nine to petition for the eventual electrification of Pontypridd.

Sheffield: 51 - one to change the bulb and 50 to sit around saying they were well clever enough to change it but they couldn't be bothered.

UNL: Nobody Knows - The light bulbs stay with North London U. longer than the students.

Since I have friends at most of the above unis, I find it hilarious :rofl:
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I'm not saying which one I'm at though....:p
